Abstract : This technical paper describes the concept for the Integrated Maintenance Information System (IMIS) under development by the Air Force Human Resources Laboratory (AFHRL). It summarizes the major research and development projects that have been completed or are in progress in support of developing the system. With the IMIS concept as a baseline, work at AFHRL has centered on feasibility studies and field tests for automated technical information delivery; presenting the information on a hand-held, rugged computer in the shop and on the flightline; development of diagnostic models to improve fault isolation and rectification; automated Aircraft Battle Damage Assessment; and studies of the impact of IMIS on maintenance training. The final output of the IMIS program will be a prototype system and functional specifications for developing an IMIS for operational use.Keywords: Aircraft battle damage assessment, Automated technical orders, Computer aided instruction, Interactive diagnostics, Maintenance information system, Man machine interface.
